By Peter Vice @ViceytheSS
France's "Foot Mercato" reports that FC Bayern München have opened up talks with FC Sevilla about the possibility of acquiring Moroccan goalkeeper Yassine "Bono" Bounou.

Bono would count as quite the high-profile acquisition and wouldn't come cheap either. The Moroccan World Cup hero maintains an estimated market value of €15 million in the latest transfermarkt listings. While the keeper himself could easily be persuaded to make the jump to a larger club, it's very much unclear as to whether Sevilla would allow him depart for anything less than an exorbitant amount of money.
Bayern were previously linked with other high-profile net-minders such as Dominik Livakovic and Keylor Navas. There ended up being no substance to these rumors. As of yet, no German media sources corroborate the reporting on Bono from France's Foot Mercato. The 31-year-old remains under contract with Sevilla through 2025.
